Migrating to a different country, especially if it’s because you have to (safety, money reasons, etc.) and not just because you feel like trying something new, is always a stressful situation. You’re somewhere new, where you don’t know anyone and where you suddenly have to try and make a living, most times without knowing whether you’ll find a job or a sustainable situation. And if the country’s inhabitants or government are not happy with you being there, everything’s worse.

That’s what’s happening in Europe — many of the countries who are receiving the higher number of immigrants are among the least-accepting countries for migrants, according to a new research from Gallup. The guys at Statista created this chart to visualize the results of the research.
